Just finished the 3D model of the mechanism and continuing with constructing the machine mechanism to rotate and raise ring #0 and #1. So far ok, but wood has warped, so new plywood must be cut. Hands full of grease and the mind could use some lubrication too..
Further ideas for the stage include a hidden layer in which a screen can be seen, on the screen is a live video of what can be seen on the other side of the model. The screen is at 1:100 transporting the people interacting on the other side into the model. Also now layer #2,#3 and #4 have to be lifted through cooperation of two viewers, they each have to rotate their respective crank at the same time in order to operate the machine. (sketches to follow)
